Below is a general (but not exhaustive) list of items to be considered in performing the survey and preparing the premises. DS1 Service delivery may be via copper or fiber/electronic facilities at Verizons discretion. The items below are for fiber service delivery. Environmental Factors. The customer must provide an environment suitable for Verizons cable and equipment at no cost to Verizon. Temperature and humidity: Dust free environment. Adequate lighting. Space for a cabinet, rack, or wall mount (see section on Backboards below) based on the service(s) ordered. Specific requirements will be determined at the site survey. Cable Path and Conduit The customer must provide a cable path at no cost to Verizon. Verizon will utilize common building telecom riser shafts where available. If core drilling or other premises preparation work is required, the customer must have this work performed at no cost to Verizon by a person other than Verizon. Verizon usually will install rigid plastic tubing in which Verizon will install Verizons fiber optic cable. Verizon usually does not require intra-building metallic conduit for installation of its fiber optic cable. If the customer or the building owner/manager requires metallic conduit, the conduit must be provided by the customer at no cost to Verizon. If metallic conduit is to be used, the required conduit specifications are 2 electrical conduit with pull rope or tape installed. Conduit routes must be designed with gradual bends (bend radius should be a minimum of 15 times the diameter of the cable to be placed) and a maximum of two 90° bends or 180° of total bends between pull boxes. Verizon must be provided with engineering drawings or as-built documentation if the route is extensive and/or complex. Verizon will co-occupy a conduit provided by the customer or building owner/manager that contains the telecommunications cable(s) of other person(s) only if the customer provides a spare, roped, sub-duct for Verizons cable. Verizon will place riser-rated cable that meets applicable fire and electrical code requirements. When a customer-provided cable path includes air plenum space, Verizon will install plenum-rated cable and additional charges to the customer and an extended installation interval will apply. (As an alternative, the customer may provide, at no cost to Verizon, metallic conduit through the air plenum space for Verizons use, which will avoid the need for installation of plenum-rated cable.)

The amperage, number and type of receptacles will be determined at the site survey. Dedicated circuits backed up by UPS/generator systems are strongly recommended. Verizon, at its discretion, may elect to accept alternative electric power arrangements such as -48V DC. Options can be discussed at the site survey. Adequate grounding capability must be available. A 120V AC, 20A, convenience outlet must be available for Verizons use. Ground The customer at no cost to Verizon must provide a ¾ metallic conduit from the Verizon equipment to a Verizon approved building ground. Verizon will run the appropriate gauge wire to the Verizon approved ground connection. Grounding options in order of preference are: 1.Building Service Ground. 2.Main Electric Box. 3.Building Steel. 4.Metallic Water Pipe. Must be in direct contact with the earth for 10 or more and electrically continuous to the point where the protector ground wire is installed. There must be a bond placed around any meters. Backboard If a backboard is needed for the installation of Verizons equipment, the customer must provide the backboard at no cost to Verizon. The backboard must be 4 feet x 8 feet x ¾ inches. Variations can be discussed at the site survey. Service Demarcation The standard interface for the demarcation with Verizons equipment will be an RJ48X jack in the proposed cabinet, bay, or wall space. Premises Access and Use The customer at no cost to Verizon must provide Verizon access to all portions of the premises for which Verizon needs access in order to install Verizons cable and equipment. It is the customers responsibility to obtain building owner/manager permission at no cost to Verizon for installation of Verizons conduit, cable and other equipment. Occupancy Charges It is the customers responsibility to provide, at no cost to Verizon, space, electric power and cable paths for Verizons use. Verizon will not pay charges for space, power, or cable paths (regardless of whether the charges are one-time or recurring).
